DII announces 2017-18 basketball showcase schedule

  A total of 26 men's and women's DII basketball games will be streamed live on ESPN3 this season.

NCAA Division II announced 26 men’s and women’s basketball games that will be streamed live during the 2017-18 season on ESPN3.

The basketball showcase unveiled Thursday will initially feature 13 doubleheaders, starting with Chico State and Humboldt State on Saturday, Nov. 18. An additional five flex doubleheaders (10 games total) will be finalized later, and the games are expected to highlight premier and pivotal matchups toward the end of the season.

“Division II’s continued collaboration with ESPN provides an exciting opportunity to share the accomplishments of our student-athletes with a broad national audience,” said Terri Steeb Gronau, vice president of Division II. “We are thrilled to continue to promote the efforts of men’s and women’s basketball student-athletes on the court, in the classroom and in their communities.”
